Crazy Card Party-- Stencils!

This week at Crazy Card Party Avril is asking us to use stencils. I love my stencils and I use them all the time on layouts. This is one of the rare times I used a stencil to make a card.

I coloured some texture paste with paint and mist. Then I added sparkly embossing powder and heated it up. Looks very cool in real life.

I hope you play with your stencils this week! Be sure to check out what the other Party-Ers stenciled this week.

You and Me at Hell's Gate

I thought I would post another layout from our BC trip. My aunt and uncle took us to Hell's Gate on the Fraser River. A scary cable car ride but such a great view.

I linked up the Simon Wednesday Challenge this week...Vacation/Travel.

Thanks for looking!

To British Columbia

When I saw the Simon Says Wednesday challenge theme of Vacation/Travel for this week, I knew I had to play along!

Here is a page from our trip to BC two years ago. We changed planes in Chicago and saw a very interesting spectacle from the terminal...a ramp ceremony for a returned soldier.  It's kind of hard to see in the photo, but the firetrucks were "saluting" the incoming plane and then the coffin when it was off loaded. Very compelling scene.

The stars and red and blue seemed appropriate for the American ceremony.

Thanks for stopping by!

Crazy Card Party--Cork!

It's my turn this week at Crazy Card Party and I chose cork! Everyone who knows me knows I am an old wino. So why not use some cork on a crafty project?!  

I die cut my sentiment out of cork. Love how it contrasts with the flowers and compliments the kraft!

I hope you play along with us this week at Crazy Card Party and dig out some cork and why not have a glass of vino while you are at it! Be sure to raise a glass to the other Party-Ers as well and see what sort of creations they made out of cork this week.

Granville Island

Thought I would post one more layout.  We had a ton of fun at Granville Island with my cousin and her family. 

I linked up with the Simon Says Wednesday challenge again this week for die cut crazy...I die cut the camera, arrows, and cloud. 

Happy long weekend!

Oh Happy Day

I haven't scrapped any layouts lately but I did make a bunch at Scrapfest last month! I thought I would post a few of our trip to BC in July 2012.

I linked up with Simon Says Wednesday Challenge...die cut crazy. I die cut my "happy" title and the clouds. 

Happy May-24!!

Crazy Card Party--New Beginnings

This week on Crazy Card Party, Kathryn is asking for cards all about new beginnings. This made me think of weddings. Here is a wedding card I made a while back with my PTI Pedal Pusher set. Aren't those tin cans tied to the back of the bike adorable?!

I hope you play along with us this week. Be  sure to go check out the Crazy Card Party blog to see what kind of new beginnings the other Party-Ers came up with.

Happy Mother's Day

I have been wanting to try a shaker card for a  while now. So I made one for my mom for Mother's Day. It was a bit challenging and now I think I have learned a few good lessons for next time I make one! Some of my sequins, as you can see, got a bit stuck.

I  hope all the moms out there had a wonderful Mother's Day! I linked up with Simon Says Wednesday Challenge...die crazy! I die cut the polaroid frame. 

thanks for stopping by :)

May you find peace this day

I thought I would share another card...this time a sympathy one I made. I also linked up with the Simon Wednesday Challenge for spring flowers. I just love this Clearly Besotted set. It stamps beautifully every time. I embossed the black stamens, but it is a bit hard to see here.

Happy Friday and may your spring flowers be blooming beautifully this weekend!!

Crazy Card Party-- Happy Mother's Day

This week at Crazy Card Party, Roseanne is calling for Mother's Day Cards. I need a couple so I decided to make one in an Asian inspired theme in honour of our recent trip to Taiwan and Singapore.

I just love that Fresh Squeezed set "String me Along." 

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! And be sure to head over to the Party to see what the other Party-Ers have created this week.

Just because...

I haven't been posting much lately. So I took a sec tonight and thought I would post a card I made a while back...

Crazy Card Party Challenge--Sewing

This week at Crazy Card Party Regs is challenging us to sew! I rarely sew on any of my projects. But this time I sewed up this cute little vellum tag and filled it with sequins! Super cute.

I hope you sew up a storm this week and join us at Crazy Card Party. And be sure to head over to the Party to see what the other Party-Ers sewed up this week!

Thanks Patricia for the gorgeous sequins!
